I'll admit that after Lady in the Water, I was a bit afraid M. Night Shyamalan had lost his touch. The movie is bad in a hilarious way, and it made you wonder how it was possible that this talented man had all of a sudden lost his ability to direct a movie. So I don't know if this has to be credited to the people who cut the trailer for his new movie or not, but The Happening looks like it could be a great return to form. The concept of the movie is really brilliant, but since the trailer doesn't really explain it, I won't go ahead and spoil it either (you can always look it up on the IMDB).
What the trailer does reveal, however, is that something is very wrong. All over the world, people are mysteriously dying. Chemical attacks by terrorists are offered up as the reason, but it soon becomes clear that other forces may be at work here. The trailer is excellent at building up the tension and gives you a few clues about what you can expect. Personally, I am especially curious as to wether or not that huge blue ring Mark Wahlberg is wearing in the trailer has any significance for the rest of the movie. The Happening looks like it will be a big disaster movie with a difference, so I'll eagerly anticipate its release in June.
